It’s a great question. I honestly just do the old fashioned way and google pharmacies near me. I call each one and simply ask, “Hi do you have any Adderall Extended Release 20mg in stock?”

Be sure to specify the following:
1. Extended Release, immediate release (ER/IR)
2. Dosage amount
3. Generic/name brand (if this is important to you). If they don’t have generic though, and they only have name brand, it will be approx $220+ for name brand.

Every month before I request my refill, I call my primary pharmacy to see if they have stock (they usually don’t). Then I get to play this fun game where I have to call every nearby pharmacy to see who has stock…make sure you have time allotted for this, during busy periods (eg lunch) so pharmacy hold times near 20 mins

Fun is one way to put it lol. I feel the same way. Do I really have to play hide and seek every single month. Ugh.

I’m in the UK and have been using Boots stock checker. Write ‘lisdexamphetamine’ instead of Elvanse/Elvanse Adult (and make sure your Rx says this too) and pop in random post codes until something says they have it. Call to confirm and then give them my NHS number if they do have stock in order to reserve. Only had to try 2 pharmacies this month but last month called 60+ before finding one an hour away

I haven’t been able to get any in over 2 months

Try a family owned, small business type pharmacy

Kind of niche question here but under NY CPLR, if a plaintiff files a MTD/MSJ, and then the defendants file opposition papers containing information that the court had previously ordered to be kept under seal, would you a) file a reply asking to seal/strike the opposition papers or b) file a separate OTSC since you’re now seeking additional relief not sought in the original motion?

I had my PHR back in early 2000, then made a career change to a paramedic (I know, right). I called SHRM and they said I'm eligible to test again even though I only currently have 1.5 yrs of HR.

I purchased the online study guide and it seems that HR has gone in a completely different direction - more operations related than employee relations etc.

Did anyone find this online training to be helpful? I test in July, so any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks - lauren

I started taking Adderal, 2.5 g which is not really a lot. It didn’t really help with my focus, instead I felt restless and somehow nervous and really thirsty. And it made me clench my teeth.

How much would a 30 day supply of Vyvanse (30mg) cost me after insurance? I know this is going to vary by plan but I'm still curious as to know how expensive of a medication this is.

My pharmacy informed me that the insurance will not cover without authorization from the psych. My psych was wary about this & instead suggested Ritalin during my session. He mentioned that insurance companies want us to first try Ritalin because they are generally cheaper. How much truth is there to this? Thanks!
